Facilities

The Fire Station has lots of space - a big cutting room, a big iso booth, lots of room to move about in the control room, and two lounge areas. Check out the floorplan.

The studio is located in downtown San Marcos, just off the 'square'. We're close to several restaurants, pubs, and gathering places. You can even walk to the river or HEB.
